ἄπονον: not μισόπονον, although μισοπονῇ appears below. Plato loves variety as well as uniformity, and Herwerden should not have proposed to write μισόπονον.

φιλόθηρος. Dümmler thinks Plato perhaps means Xenophon, who loved the chase; but it is unlikely that any personal reference is intended either here or in 535 C. See also on 535 E.

-- φιλοπονίαν: ‘whose love of work has taken the opposite direction.’
